What is a Jet-Puffed S’moagie?
Jet-Puffed Marshmallows has partnered with Italian sandwich shop and “best sandwich in New York City” list frequenter Alidoro to crank out a s’mores/prosciutto hoagie mashup in honor of National Sandwich Day. I’m not sure why marshmallows need to muscle in on Sandwich Day, but here we are. I’ll be on the lookout for a Heinz Ketchup collabo on National Toasted Marshmallow Day next August 30th. (Marketing execs, this is a joke. Don’t do it. But if you do, I’ll be there.)
Alidoro created a graham-cracker-glazed hoagie roll, slathered it with sea salt dark chocolate spread, layered on some toasted/melty Jet-Puffed marshmallows, and topped it with thin, crispy prosciutto.
How is it?
First, a word for the sweet-salty averse: CALM DOWN. IT’S GOING TO BE FINE. WE’LL GET THROUGH THIS.
This was a really tasty sandwich. The graham-cracker roll was like sweet bread, and the marshmallows were a perfect consistency – melty and stringy, but not on a mission to ooze all over my hands and clothes. At first, I thought it was a little on the small side, but in retrospect, it was exactly the right amount of sandwich.
The chocolate flavor was so dominant here that the prosciutto actually faded into the background (for better or worse, depending on your personal POV). I’ve had a lot of bacon-laced sweets in my time, and I was expecting it to pack more of a savory punch. A tad disappointing. However, I noticed when I got down to the end of the sandwich, there was less marshmallow and chocolate, so the prosciutto stood out more, which I liked.
Anything else you need to know?
If you’re in New York City, hit the Alidoro locations at Rockefeller Center or Bryant Park to buy a S’moagie in person. The rest of the nation can order a S’moagie kit on Goldbelly, but at a higher price point. Now before you whine about the unfairness of that, just remember New Yorkers pay a staggering amount to live in sky-high shoeboxes, and every one of us has a story about a crazy place where we’ve found a cockroach. Easy access to the S’moagie is the trade-off.
A fun, delicious combo! As-is, probably more suited for sweet-salty newbies. If you grew up putting salt on watermelon like me, it might be on the tame side. Adjust expectations…or bring extra prosciutto.

Disgusting fail or creative win? We all like different things to eat, otherwise what a haggis shortage there would be. Sorry, this is a yucky-and-no-thank-you from me! But fun to read about.
NYC, I love ya…but, please do keep this monstrous mash-up all to yourself. Yuck-O!
This sounds amazing and I’m totally trying this at home with less marshmallow. I wish I could try this one! Alas, PDX is a bit far.
Salty, sweet and spicy is my favorite. Peanut butter, strawberry jam, and pickled jalapeños is a late night favorite. I may need to add bacon or prosciutto! Yum!
I’ve made a s’mores sandwich before, but have never thought to add bacon (or prosciutto in this case). That would make a delightful salty-sweet-savory combination. This gives me a great idea for a dessert grilled cheese – marshmallow fluff cream cheese + chocolate + peanut butter (add bacon if desired). Grill in salted butter for an added salty note or just sprinkle a little salt over the filling. Or instead of chocolate, use Nutella? Many different delicious possibilities.
It appears as though New York has finally taken notes from their neighboring states by mimicking notes of the beloved fluffernutter. I highly recommend trying one if you haven’t, they’re wicked good!
There’s a restaurant in Athol, Idaho that recently won best in the state called Candle in the Woods. They always have a steak s’mores as one of the small bites on their tasting menu and people RAVE about it.
That’s why I love this site. Now I know about Candle in the Woods. Thank you for sharing this!
